Comments: Pitch 2 is worth doing. Watch the rope drag and string it out into one long pitch. Belay from the anchors up top and have fun getting back to the rings at the top of the first "pitch".

Comments: So good. This route deserves all of the stars it gets. Great exposure, fun moves, and one poorly placed bolt adds to the spice of the route. So, so, so good.

Comments: I did this route about a year ago and wussed out and traversed to the anchors out left (extension of Exoduster.) Finally got on it again this weekend when I saw someone had bailed and left 2 nuts, a sling and 3 biners. I agree, the traverse is very spicy. I got rope burn pulling rope across my leg I was so sketched.

Comments: Aaron,

I was at the comp at the rock the other night. I'm president of VT's climbing club but won't be after this semester because I'm graduating. Anyway, I'm trying to head down there with COEveryman (Jordan) soon to check the area out. Hope it's as good as you say, the pictures look totally awesome.

Comments: This route was a lot of fun for me. Not typical RRG, but very reminiscent of the New River Gorge. Thought it was a great line.

Comments: Joe,

I just wanted to chime in here on the access thing. I'm president of VT's climbing club and Bozoo is super critical to us. It's a great destination to take beginners and teach people.

That being said, we went through the whole access ordeal when the signs were posted and after going through a few people, a local to the area who knows and has close contact with the new land owner informed us that those signs are to keep hunters out. Climbers are fine.
